Content Under Construction

I know we're all about the body here, so here's mine, past and present. Poor quembelle, this entry has been on her friends list 3 times. : )

This is the first day of my sophomore year of high school in 1998.  I know so because I cropped out the date stamp.  If you know my father, (which I think only one person who reads this does), look closely at my face.  I look *just* like him.  It's kinda scary.  Well, anyway, I keep this picture on my fridge.  Not as a reminder of how fat I was, but as a reminder of how fat I was.  No, that's not a typo, just a different meaning.  See, I don't look at it to shame myself.  Sometimes I get down and I say, "Oh, I can't do it, boo hoo hoo."  But I did.  At one time in my young life I lost 60 pounds.  I did it once, I can certainly do it again.

In case you haven't noticed, I'm not very photogenic.  My eyes get all squinty when I smile.

I'd been working third shift at State Farm this holiday.  At this point, I'd been up for 24 hours straight.  Drew looks like a young Grizzly Adams.  I don't know why I display this picture in my living room.  I guess there was a frame that needed filling.  I weigh about 235 in this picture.  I lived with Drew's parents at this point, and they drink whole milk.  Yikes!  I was also just starting at The Farm, and Drew's mom made all my meals.  Delicious home cooking twice a day plus new job plus holidays equals scary badness.

So I've progressed a lot since these two pictures, and at the same time, not enough.

I'm examining hummus.  Fascinating.  I need a haircut... badly.  Drew just woke up when he took this picture.

I'll be honest- I don't see much of a difference from 20 pounds ago.  In my face, sure.  But my hips still look... ew.  So I don't know.  It's kind of disappointing.

This one looks a little better (I tire of pictures easily... this the silliness).  Note the lack of squinty-ness.  Is this a fluke, or could the reduction of fat in my face mean no more squinties?  Only time will tell.

Well, there you have it.  I have a lot of work to do, but like I said before- I did it once, I can do it again.  Didn't help that I doubled up on macaroons for lunch.
